Up Close and Personal with Ellie

The last post  showed a nice little glimpse of Ellie's baptism day.   This post will give you a more personal, albeit more candid view of the day:  


Ellie's dress may have looked pretty from a distance...

but look more closely and you will see that I still can't sew in a straight line. 


I never did get around to printing her invitations, but I did send this by email to a few people who I didn't think would be insulted by receiving it a mere 12 hours beforehand.  


Here's the ALL ABOUT ELLIE section I put in in the baptismal program:

All About Ellie

Full Name: Eliza Sandra G.
Eliza—after maternal ancestor, Eliza Ann Perkins

Favorite Color:

Favorite Food:

Favorite Scripture:

(she’s had it memorized since she was 5)

Favorite Scripture Hero:

Favorite Primary Song:
A Child’s Prayer


And here's a look at the "I apparently photoshop about as well as I sew"  picture of Ellie I put on the front of the program:


I had nothing to do with this cute candy bar note the primary made for her, but I thought I'd put it in here anyway. 

And one last glimpse of my sorry attempt to make up for the "C-" I got in Sewing 101 at BYU. 


And last, but not least.....

Ellie's slightly menacing note written to Adam the night before her baptism: 

Hi Adam,
Can you set the alarm clock for 7:40? 

PS  Write back on piece of paper.  There's no choice if you want to see me get baptized.
